ABSTRAKT

The effects of gross heterogeneity and anisotropy, associated with horizontal fissures in a porous medium filling a parallel-plate channel, on forced convection are studied. An approximate analysis, based on a piecewise-constant (layered) distribution of permeability across the channel, is used to model the experiments performed by Paek et al. (1999) on foam material with drilled-out tubes. The analysis leads to estimates of the Nusselt number, Nu. Drilling out the tubes leads to a reduction in the value of Nu but an even greater reduction in the friction factor, f, so that the net result is an increase in the value of Nu/f, i.e., for a given driving pressure gradient the heat transfer is increased.
